Abstract

This study investigated the Concentrations of the toxic metals Pb, As, Cr, Zn, Fe, and Cu in soils and plants in Dareta gold mining village, Zamfara State, Nigeria Samples were collected and analysed following standard Laboratory methods. The values obtained were compared with nearby unpolluted area as control. All the soils indicated contamination with the toxic metals Pb, As, Cr, Zn and Cu, above the maximum allowed limits. With the exception of Cd and Ni which were not detected. Cr has the highest Concentration in both Samples indicative of possible mineral deposit in the area. Proper mining regulations and monitoring could help control further contamination.
